Have a ground-breaking idea? Want to do something with your family, friends or co-workers for a good cause? Why not hold a fabulous event on behalf of Casey House?
Whether you’re an individual, business, community group, school or service club, a community fundraiser is a fun and rewarding way to generate valuable funds for, and awareness of, Casey House and the great work we do. Every dollar raised makes a difference in the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS. Proceeds from community fundraisers help to support Casey House’s innovative inter-disciplinary inpatient and outpatient programs.
Here are some creative examples of community-hosted events:
- Grease the musical- Invited attendees to donate to Casey House at intermission and after the show; contributions were promoted by talking about Casey House from the stage and inserting a page into the program
- The Ballroom Bowl- donated bowling shoe rental sales over Pride weekend
- Bumble- dating and friend finding app Bumble donated $0.02 from every match made on a particular day in Canada
